What kind of robots would be useful for people with disabilities?

With Japan's aging population, robots are becoming more and more common in our daily lives.
Let's explore the topic of "robots" and "people with disabilities," something we may not always think about, with other group members.

Inspirational talk speakers are Takayuki Furuta, General Manager of Future Robotic Technology Center (fuRo), Chiba Institute of Technology, who developed CanguRo, a robotics and AI fusion device, and Takeshi Nakamura, Founder of Raise the Flag Inc., who has developed several assistive devices for the visually impaired, including SYN+, a sensory device that replaces sight.

This event is open to everyone, including those with no knowledge or experience of robots or people with disabilities.

Come join us for a fun and engaging discussion!

● LIVES Project Mission

To create an inclusive society where the individuality of each person shines
and everyone is empowered to WORK, EAT and LAUGH together.

Working every day, eating every day, and laughing every day, should be a part of our daily lives.
However, there are those who cannot do what we could consider as our daily activities.
Japan continues to be a difficult environment for those with disabilities to join the workforce and be a part of the community.
How difficult it is for people with mental, intellectual and physical challenges to live like others in our current society!

"Happiness, Inspiration & Diversity!"

Date & Time : Saturday, September 23rd, 11:30 - 18:30
Venue : Hybrid Event / Tokyo Midtown (Roppongi) and online
*Both English interpretation and Sign Language Interpretation are available.
